7 Hunters Walk
- An unusual opportunity to purchase a freehold office building in a prime Chester city centre location accompanied by three private allocated car parking spaces.
- Suitable for continued office use or conversion to three residential apartments with full planning consent already granted.
The subject property is located within the Hunters Walk office development, accessed off Canal Street which links with Upper Northgate Street, one of the principal shopping streets in Chester. Vehicular access to Hunters Walk is excellent being located adjacent to the city inner ring road and within several hundred yards of the main “Fountains Roundabout” which enables direct vehicular access to the subject property without the need to enter the congested city centre shopping area. This ease of access is combined with all the prime city centre shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, financial services and other associated amenities being within a short distance walk.
Hunters Walk is a modern office development comprising of a series of small to medium sized three storey office buildings arranged around a central courtyard and car park. Number 7 Hunters Walk is an end-terraced building of traditional brick construction under a pitched and slated roof and provides an open plan office suite on both the ground, first and second floor levels accompanied by a disabled WC at ground floor level, a kitchen at first floor level and a further WC at second floor level. The property further benefits from wall mounted electric heaters, suspended ceilings incorporating fluorescent light fittings, a mixture of laminate and carpet floor finishes and double glazed windows.
In our opinion, the building lends itself equally well to single occupation or being let on a floor by floor basis.
